Karamba3D is a parametric structural engineering tool which provides accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames and shells.

Karamba3D is fully embedded in the parametric design environment of Grasshopper, a plug-in for the 3d modeling tool Rhinoceros. This makes it easy to combine parameterized geometric models, finite element calculations and optimization algorithms like Galapagos.now
